Gather fields from regExp and XML and doing an bool Check for a value


Is this where I use RegularExpression or Xml Tag Extract?
I am trying to create a search that shows when this value is 1 or zero on issuepolicy and gather the GUID in UI Event.
ideally an report that shows the GUID UIEvent and 0 or 1 from issuepolicy.

my RegEx works... Just not in splunk or with extracting the field 😞

(?<=UIEvent \[)([^\]]*)

and when I tried to extract the xml nothing seemed to notice the pipe
[search index=mainSvr customers | xmlkv issueNews ]

So I am confused can I do this without having access to my server that splunk lives on ? I see some recommend to chang the conf file to allow XML to be automatically parsed.

Your regex doesn't include a field extraction. Try this:

index=mainSvr customers | xmlkv issueNews | rex "(?<=UIEvent \[)(?<GUID>[^\]]*).*?issuepolicy=\\\"(?<issuepolicy>\d)" | ...
